      MINISTER OF NATIONALITIES POLICY: WEST GETTING INCLINED IN RUSSIA'S
      FAVOUR ON CHECHEN ISSUE

      MOSCOW, June 2, 2003. /from a RIA Novosti correspondent/--The western
      public opinion is "slowly but surely growing inclined in Russia's
      favour" on the issue of federal authorities' actions in Chechnya,
      Vladimir Zorin, Russian Federation Minister of Nationalities Policy,
      said in an interview with RIA Novosti on Monday.

      According to the official, the recent analysis of the press and steps
      taken by foreign heads of state and their executive structures prove
      that the opinion about federal authorities' actions in Chechnya is
      changing for the better.

      "More and more politicians are coming to realise what a serious
      challenge Russia has been faced with, international terrorism
      factually nesting in its territory," Zorin underlined. Western
      politicians' attitudes are changing, while "the world community is
      growing more experienced in the issue of fighting international
      terrorism," the minister added.

      In this connection the Russian minister stressed the talks between
      Russian and US respective Presidents Vladimir Putin and George Bush
      that had been held the day before and which aired the issue of
      Chechnya and international terrorism. "The Russian and US leaderships
      are seeking to consult and co-ordinate actions fighting the new evil,
      and Chechnya is the advance-guard of international terrorism," Zorin
      summed up.
